Sola-Bootstrap

December 29, 2009

Overheard this from Scottie Smith on Facebook:

“Too many Christians try to live the Christian life by the equally destructive principles of ‘Sola-bootstrapsa’ (I must keep the law in my own strength and effort) and ‘Ego-nomianism’ (I am able to keep the law).” 
Both of these contradict the gospel, by minimizing our need and marginalizing God’s grace.
